Featured Descent

Mt Toll

From the Summit.  The primary ski is down the south face of Mt Toll.  there are a couple of different options from an open snow field to a fairly narrow couloir.  Both of which provide nice turns.  Once down from the main snow field and conditions permitting make you way back to Blue Lake and follow the same trail you took on the way in to get out.

Details

The northern drainages of Big Cottonwood Canyon are much more subtle than their southern counterparts. They are less steep, more rounded and friendly looking, and have a lot more sun. There is mellow tree skiing, more open terrain, and shorter tours. The elevation rarely gets over 10,000ft.

How to Get There

take 190 east out of Salt Lake City. The stuff on the left is the northern drainages. Round trips are on 5-8 miles on average.
